Wilson, Tina; McAndrew, Patrick and Meiszner, Andreas (2011). Sharing software engineering resources and open source software across entities. In: 12th Annual Conference of Higher Education Academy Subject Centre for Information and Computer Science, 23-25 Aug 2011, Belfast UK.



This paper describes a number of ‘good ideas’ designed to assist staff who are involved in the management, delivery or support of student project work. The ideas were formed from a Disciplinary Commons. The good ideas discussed include online forums, a project repository, alternative project structures, project preparation, progress reviews, instant supervision, peer support and anti-cheating mechanisms. Readers are encouraged to dip in, consider the ideas and implement those of most use for their own institutions.
